Egg and Us, The
This film assures us, the American viewer, that we have confidence in the economy and that "the nation's nest egg is growing" to 235 billion dollars in savings. Even though the postwar economy is helping the individual to save money, the national debt totals 275 billion dollars which can be paid off in the most stable manner by the government borrowing from individuals. This film speaks confidently to Americans, assuming and convincing the viewer that they have faith in the American economy, and urging them to purchase U.S. Savings Bonds.

Subject: Keeping Bank Ownership of America In Line
If you love America, buy Bonds, or
If distrust the big banks, buy Bonds, or
If you support the military, buy Bonds, or
If you believe in free enterprise, buy Bonds, or
If you care about your employees, help them buy Bonds, or
If you care about your children, buy Bonds, or
If you want America white and Christian, buy Bonds.
How could anyone argue with that?
